I have taken Phentermine for two months now. I was 430 lbs, I lost 18 pounds in a month and a half before taking Phentermine, on my own. I was having trouble and was so tired all the time. My doctor perscribed me Phentermine after months of begging for something to help me. He is happy he did. My mood has improved, the weight is melting off, 45 lbs in two months to be exact, and I drink a ton of water and feel better. I can go two or three days without it here and there and still do great. I weigh 367 now since May and my body doesn't hurt anymore. I honestly am sick of the "eat healthy and exercise on your own" suggestions. I am eating healthy and exercising now that I have help of Phentermine. If I could do it without medication, I wouldn't be fat. Just make sure you pay attention to what you eat and keep your scheduled diet for when you stop taking it, so you dont gain some back. It's to be used as a way to help you create a new lifestyle of eating, not to need it to function or stay small. It's a great tool to get started.View Thread
